A website that depicts Jesus Christ as a modern tattoo artist has argued before an appeals court that a Texas school district discriminated against it when it rejected an ad for a high school stadium.
Little Pencil Ministries, which oversees the website tattoojesus.org, filed a lawsuit last year against the Lubbock Independent School District over not being allowed to run an ad on a jumbotron display at a stadium.
Arguments were heard Tuesday in the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals between Little Pencil and Lubbock, with the former being represented by the religious freedom legal group, Alliance Defending Freedom. more >>
Outspoken Christian NFL player Benjamin Watson recently issued a powerful Facebook post writing about the Islamic State and the rise of Christian persecution throughout the world, asserting that all Christians should be ready to die for upholding their faith in Jesus Christ.
"The images keep flooding our timelines and news feeds. Men being burned alive or beheaded by masked assassins. Stories of families on the run, fleeing their homes while they are pillaged and burned," Watson's Saturday Facebook post explained. "Their testimonies hold a familiar chord: 'Convert, Pay or Die!'"
Watson, an 11-year NFL veteran who's a tight end for the New Orleans Saints, wrote that although extremist groups like ISIS and Boko Haram in Nigeria have risen to prominence and are out to destroy Christianity, believers should never deny Christ in order to save their lives. more >>
The city council of Charlotte, N.C., the hometown of world-renowned Evangelist Billy Graham, narrowly voted on Monday to reject a proposed expansion to the town's non-discrimination law that would have made it legal for transgender persons to use bathrooms and other public facilities designated for the opposite sex.
After hearing four hours of public input from supporters and opponents of the proposal Monday evening, the council voted, 6-5, after an hour of discussion, to throw out the entire ordinance bill.
The proposal would not just have given transgenders the right to use the opposite gender's restrooms but would have also made it illegal for Charlotte business owners to decline service in order to uphold their Christian beliefs that same-sex marriages is wrong. more >>
Nothing says America quite like smoking a pork butt and flying Old Glory.
"The sport of professional barbecue is extremely American and family oriented," said pitmaster Jeff Petkevicius.
So you can imagine Jeff's extreme displeasure when organizers of an Alabama barbecue competition ordered him – along with other competitors to take down the American flags hanging from their barbecue trailers. more >>
A Republican lawmaker was forced to clarify a controversial post she wrote on social networking site Facebook after critics deemed it to be "racist."
In January, Tennessee's House majority floor leader, Rep. Sheila Butt, called for the formation of "a Council of Christian Relations and a NAAWP in this Country," which left critics up in arms.
The post was in response to an open letter from the Council on American-Islamic Relations — an organization that the United Arab Emirates has labeled a terrorist group — urging potential presidential candidates to reach out to American Muslim voters in a bid to help tackle Islamophobia. Some interpreted the acronym NAAWP to mean the National Association for the Advancement of White People, which was an organization was founded by former Klu Klux Klan leader David Duke. more >>
In 2007, and with that same nauseating arrogance that has come to define him, then presidential candidate Barack Obama duplicitously quipped, "I am absolutely convinced that culture wars are just so '90s. Their days are growing dark."
Dark, indeed. America's soon-to-be cultural-Marxist-in-chief would then spend the greater part of a decade waging war against our nation's Judeo-Christian culture and heritage at levels, and in ways, unseen in our storied history. Today, his anti-Christian crusade continues unabated. In fact, and with less than two years left to complete his baleful conspiracy, this neo-pagan extremist has begun to rapidly accelerate his unravelings.
Chief among his targets for destruction are conservative and Christian organizations and individuals who pose a threat to his envisaged "fundamental transformation" of our once-Judeo-Christian nation. What do I believe the Obama vision look like? A godless, Euro-socialist dystopia crafted in his own secular-humanist self-image. more >>
